Why You Should Include Your Neck

One of the most neglected or forgotten parts of self-care is the neck.

We like to focus so much on our face that we ignore the needs of our neck. This is why as we age, it sags and gets left behind.

When in fact, the neck has thinner skin and ages a bit more quickly. That’s why it gets wrinkle by the time we hit a certain age. 

So, how do you take care of your neck?

It’s so easy to find a neck cream nowadays given the number of choices on the market. However, if you do not have an extra budget for this, it’s okay extending your face creams down to your neck and decolletage. 

Do know that there are fewer sebaceous glands in this area. Meaning, you can lather a thicker layer of your moisturizers when it comes to your neck. 

Just keep in mind that the skin in this area is thinner. So, your skincare with strong exfoliating ingredients might not be a good idea and can give you red itchy bumps. 

Applying skincare to your neck will help in keeping it moisturized, smooth, and even-toned. 

Lastly, do not forget to protect your neck as you do with your face. SPF will slow down the signs of aging especially when it comes to wrinkling and sunspots.
